The actor and producer made the statement in an exclusive interview with Variety. “First of all, I was heartbroken. We lost a life. My heart goes out to his family and everyone on set. I’ve known Alec for a very long time as well.” Johnson said.
“I can’t speak for anyone else, but I can tell you, without a lack of clarity here, that any movie we have with Seven Bucks Productions – any movie, any TV show or whatever we do or produce – we will not use real weapons at all “, he added.
Johnson further revealed that Seven Bucks will now replace real ammo with rubber pistols.
“We’re going to switch to rubber guns, and we’re going to take care of them on the job. We’re not going to worry about the dollars; we won’t care what it costs.
“I think the safest and smartest thing to do is pause for a second and really reconsider how you’re going to move forward and how we’re going to work together.
“All the movies that we do that Seven Bucks does with any studio, the rule is we’re not going to use real guns. That’s it.”
